Chilli Types (Scoville Scale)

See where our different chilli varieties sit on the Scoville Scale.

The Scoville Scale is a measurement of the pungency (the 'spicyness' or 'heat') of a chilli pepper and is based on the typical concentration of capsaicinoids found in the chilli. The scale is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU). As a reference, your typical capsicum comes in at 0 SHU, while the hottest chilli ever recorded is the Carolina Reaper coming in at 2,200,000 SHU.

The hottest we stock is the Scorpion reaching as high as 2,000,000 SHU, and the Ghost at around 1,000,000 SHU.
